I use a Sony Cybershot, 5 megapixel camera mounted (the mount was developed
by Bobby Martin of www.martinmicroscope.com) on our Olympus BX40 which has
served us very well here at Mercer. You may contact him via the web site.
They offer several other cameras as well.

We are planning to get a new digital camera for our Leica DM4000 microscope.
The camera will be used for photographing both normal light microscopy and
standard epifluorescence microscopy of various histological samples.

One of the cameras we have tested is Olympus DP70, which seems to be pretty
good. However, I'm a bit uncertain of the specific technology used in the
camera (it has a 1.4 megapixel CCD which is slightly moved around to produce
up to 12 megapixel images).

So, if anyone has experience in this system, I'd welcome any comments.

Of course, recommendations for other systems will also be appreciated. 
Briefly, we need a camera for colour work, sensitive enough for
epifluorescence, and let's say at least 4-5 megapixels.
